4.0 out of 5 stars
Although it has charm, this gem has some flaws, 11 Jan. 2013
Venetica was one of those overlooked titles that did not reach the whole European region, only the UK, and I have always wanted to play it. But at that time did not own a PS3, but this game has always been on the back of my head - and I now can say with an honest opinion, that this game is very worth your time and money if you are a RPG fan.
If you can look away from some of the bugs like; missing audio dialogue, texture popping and the occasionally game breaking bugs. [game breaking bug: can be resolved by quitting the game to the PS3 menu screen] The game will take you on a entertaining journey, high and low trough the contrasting streets of Venice.
The game has a easy learning curve, big skill tree with many spells and skills to learn, the choice of joining one of 3 guilds in Venice and dialogue that effects the outcome of the ending.
I did all the quest and accumulated 40+ hours of gameplay, and I got the good ending. But I still want to go back and just be the unsympathetic evil hero to get the bad ending.
On a side-note to all that cares about gaining trophies - one word, easy.
